Storyline

In New York, the ambitious Dr. Jack Byron and his associate Gordon Mitchell present the research of his assistant Sam Rogers to the CEO and board of directors of a corporation to sponsor a scientific expedition to Borneo. The objective is to find a flower, Blood Orchid, that flourishes for a couple of weeks every seven years and could be a fountain of youth, prolonging the expectation of life of human beings. They are succeeded and once in Borneo, they realize that it is the raining season and there is no boat available to navigate on the river. They pay US$ 50,000.00 to convince Captain Bill Johnson and his partner Tran to sail to the location. After an accident in a waterfall, the survivors realize that a pack of anacondas have gathered for mating and their nest is nearby the plantation of Blood Orchid, which made them bigger and bigger.

Not bad at all
5 September 2004 | by shakawtwfSee all my reviews

Along with "Catwoman", here's another summer movie that really wasn't bad at all. In fact, I think I liked it a little better than the first one. The plot had a few unexpected zigs and zags, some chills and quite a bit of genuine humor. Everyone's a little too pretty (even the guys) to be believed as a representative cross-section of humanity but that's Hollywood for you.

The fact that there are no anacondas in Borneo mildly detracts but I guess that's a minor squabble (someone really should have either done more research or simply placed the movie back in South America). If you're looking for a light summer entertainment, it's perfect.
